OneNote is the latest major Office 365 app that is going to join the dark theme trend very soon just like most of the other in-house apps. Microsoft also plans to roll out some major navigation enhancements in the upcoming Office updates.

OneNote offers a variety of features to its users including the ability to draw. As of now, the software lacks the dark mode that is currently available to most of the other Microsoft apps including Skype, Edge, and even File Explorer. Most of the users who have to use OneNote on a regular basis have found that extremely annoying in some situations.

Well, there is good news for all the OneNote users out there! “The Darkmode is going to be launched very soon”, although Microsoft has not yet revealed the release date.

It seems like a selected group of Windows Insiders have already got access to the dark theme, as some of the screenshots have been released by the Italian blog Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia.

The head of the Microsoft’s Notes and Tasks team Laura Butler confirmed in a tweet that the company is working on the dark theme along with some major improvements in the navigation. 

The recent reports also suggest that the feature is expected to be synchronised with your Microsoft Account. OneNote is a versatile tool due to its availability on various platforms including Mac and Windows. It will be easy for users to keep their settings while switching between devices on the go.

Apparently, it is visible from the screenshot that the dark theme has been incorporated all over the OneNote app. While the note-taking area still seems to be white.

The final version might be apparently different to some extent as Butler reported the glimpse to be from an older version of the build. Hence, at the moment we can’t be sure about the outlook of the final product.

Today most of the apps are incorporating the dark theme in their apps to ease the eyes of the users. The trend war was initially started by Microsoft but it’s just a matter of time that how long the tech giant expects to extend the dark mode feature.
